On the 5th pic were APA is flying to the right are the same spots visible as on the Sarah Edington pic taken Oct 11. You can see even the details of the ribs on it. But whereas on repaired A380's it's a kind of scar you would think that on MSN137 with the new wing design these would be missing. Unless she was modified before delivery... Questions, questions...
Sarah Edington took this pic of APA on Saturday. I noticed the lighter area in the middle of both wings. I have seen it on A380's that had their wing repairs, but MSN137 was the first with the new design. What can this be? Kind of condensation that gives this effect? I remember when I flew on BA XLEA in Sep 2013 and sat right over the wing, it had a brown area on top in the middle during flight.
On the 2 March 2015 QR004 Opreating from LHR-DOH pushed back at 14:23. As push back checks were completed, few mins later taxing to the runway the captain had reported hydraulic problems on the wheels. Aircraft safley then returned to the gate and then pushed back again around 18:15 and departed at 18:35. Making the delay of 4 hours roughly.
Now according to captain of QR4 as the plane was pushed back fully from the gate, they kept on moving forward and backward serval times with the tug attached to the front wheel. Abit strange?
I take it this is the first time A7-APA had a technical issue with the aircraft..
